Always I thinking what happen if we could had pattern in Floor Command in Revit then we can create many detail for Floor Pattern, but We have another command and the base procedure for use this command is very similar to Floor , Yea , the Answer is Roof .
Do you ever think about Sloped glazing Roof ?! and the ability this roof gives you ?!? you can create pattern in the Horizontal face with this command.
Let’s use this Command for Floor False Modeling in Revit.
First step is family modeling and I did this with Inventor .
Base part is Tile and you can see how I export this model from Inventor and Imported that into Revit Family.
Go to the File Menu ( 1 ) and select Export > Cad Format ( 2 )
In the export dialog box change the File type to *.SAT format ( 1 )
Now you can go to Revit and create new Family ( Curtain Wall Panel ) ( 1 )
From the Insert Ribbon you can import your 3d Model into Revit ( 1 , 2 )
You can see the result for your family and you need some change.
Change the model position and orientation like the below Picture , pay attention to the side of placement for 3d model . ( 3 , 4 , 5 )
You can make export from another part from Inventor and bring your model into this family.
In the Final Result you have one pattern of what you want for floor Modeling. you can Create parameter for control the Distance between Top face of Tile and the bottom of Leg.
Now you can Load your family into the project area and create Roof
